4. Where do you see your business in 10 years? What are your plans for the future?

Speaking on Behalf of my care center, I believe in 10 years we will continue to see growth, in many ways. Healthcare is always evolving so there is sure to be bigger and better changes to come.
 

5. 1A is “Focused on Forward” – meaning we are taking an active role of improving the community we live in. Our members are Focused on Forward, too! - What does Focused on Forward mean to you? How is your company Focused on Forward?

Focused on Forward means that we will continue to be proactive in the community by providing education and support, as well as, continuing to provide the best quality care. As I have stated in my previous answer, healthcare is constantly changing and there are always bigger and better resources available. We are constantly looking for better resources and partnerships to better our business, for the community. As a business development member, I am a huge advocate for our patient population. I believe there is a large barrier that we need to overcome, with that said, our company relies on myself and the rest of our care enter to educate the population on what resources we can provide for them and what they are entitled to. I feel by advocating for our patients we are one step closer to a bigger and better Acadiana! I am so excited to take this journey with One Acadiana!
